Welcome March ICLWers!


Welcome ICLWers!

For those new to ICLW, it stands for International Comment Leaving Week.  It's a week dedicated to honoring and encouraging commenting on fellow bloggers' blogs.  It's a great time to find new blogs and make new friends.  If you are not already part of ICLW, make sure to contact Mel to be included in future ICLWs.

For those visiting here for the first time, welcome!

This is an exciting time for me.  I am currently going through my second round of IVF.  We have been trying for our first child for 6 years with 4 failed IUIs and one unsuccessful previous IVF.  You can read more about our journey here.  I just completed my egg retrieval on Friday, March 19th.  8 eggs were retrieved from my left ovary, but unfortunately none from my right.  You can read about my egg retrieval story here.

For now, I do not know how many of my 8 eggs have fertilized.  I am expecting a call from the clinic sometime today with a fertilization report.  I will know then how many have fertilized and if I will go in for a 3-day or a 5-day transfer.  The current plan is for a 5-day transfer, but it will all depend on how my little embies are growing.

So stick around to find out how this plays out.  I'd love to hear from you and read about your story too.  Have a great week commenting!
